Gather round the table and share freshly baked bread. Carve your initials or favourite symbol in the crust before dough becomes bread in the oven. Four simple ingredients and you have something beautiful. Hands to knead in love and positive energy. Hands to break and share. Smiles and homemade soups to dip into. Everything comes together eventually. You love and plan and work, and then it finally falls into place and dreams come true. Enjoy every moment! Building on these moments, we are grateful for what is here. ‘Awake’ is the state of Real Love. “Live in the Light!” ~Amor Milagre
Artisan Crusty Round, An Everyday Basic Bread
A relaxing, soul soothing exercise. Try this recipe. Tell us if you like it. Apply this simple recipe example to everything. All you need is love to simplify. Everything in balance and close to nature. Eat this with a hearty homemade vegetable soup for a lovely meal. This basic bread recipe lends itself wonderfully to variation. Add seeds, nuts, dried/fresh fruit/vegetables/herbs/spices. Have fun!
Real bread, no sugar, we only eat little bits here and there, because bread breaks down into glucose/sugar. Wonderful fresh organic plants. A garden to grow with us.
Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:
4 Cups of your favourite flour. We used what we had: 2.5 C organic whole wheat pastry flour and 1.5 C Organic Whole Wheat Einkorn Flour (Which is a beautiful light ancient grain which we’re looking into for our garden. I’ll post an einkorn flour cracker recipe shortly. They’re light and delicious!)
2 C hot water
1.5 tsp salt
1 organic baker’s instant dry yeast packet (.25 oz. or 2.25 tsp)
Mix the ingredients together and knead with floured hands. Divide into two rounds, sprinkle with a little flour, and place on a baking sheet with a damp cloth over top. Let rest to rise for 1 hour. Score the surface. Bake at 450 degrees for 22 minutes. Let rest 10-20 minutes on a wire rack, then enjoy this simple pleasure. Store in a paper bag.
